Best Ever!!!! I love your trucks so much that I completly modeled my squad E-5 exactly after this but than I steped on it in the middle of the night and only the chassi was left- bummer but than I built a squad E-2 body- yours
Sure, that is fine by me. And Mike and I would have similar building techniques and have shared design ideas in the past.

Ok I see I was updating my puc and i was looking at how you did the hose bed. And Could I use the design for an engine I am building. Have i told you some of your stuff looks like Mike L's.
Yea, I guess it does have a little bit of a Reading Fire look to it. The only thing I don't like about their engines is the diamond plate body of the engine. It just lacks color. But besides that, it is a pretty good engine design. Thanks for the comment.

Great job Paul! Hope to see more from you soon! Looks a little like Reading, PA's engines too.
